Three's a charm

Here is my third card for the Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.

The wonderful super sponsor Craftin' Desert Divas offered up this adorable Java Fox image and I couldn't resist.  We wanted to do something nice for my daughter's guitar I put together this heavy fruit basket and then used the fox to make this card.

So you can find all the details on the hop on their blog post...try and create something and link's so much fun!!!  (and you can get some of your holiday cards done in the process!)

Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's take two for me with the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

For my second card I used the fantastic Coffee Lover Mae image for my card...  

I colored her with my Copic markers.  I then backed her onto green cardstock and then onto a card that I added a strip of pattern paper to.  I made the cute coffee mug sentiment on my computer, printed it out, and added it to my image.

I hope you will join in the fun and link up a project...

It's time for a Hol-ODD-Day blog hop!

Here we come a caroling... no wait, 

we are having a Hol-ODD-Day blog hop!

All the ODD 'elves' have been busy creating some Hol-ODD-Day goodies to share with you. There are so many ah-mazing holiday stamps to choose from in the SOG shop, including the latest, Christmas Prank digi.

Ready to read the hop rules.... leave a comment on each ODD girl's blog post for a special chance to win a $25 gift certificate, plus there will be some extra $5 winners too. Winners will be announced on Saturday Dec 17th. BUT, everyone can enjoy the gift of 25% OFF in the shop with the code HOLODDDAY!

For my project I used the wonderful Santa's List Tia image:

I added the thought bubble and items to the list before I printed the image out.  I then chalked the background behind Tia so the white really popped.  The entire image was then colored with Copics.  I added some gold glitter pen to the jingle bell on her neck and the metal on toy train.

Be sure to keep hopping along to Kristy's blog as your final stop on the hop...

It's time for the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I am so excited to participate in this's been so fun to watch how big the hop has grown over time.

For my first card I used this wonderful image from Some Odd Girl titled Coffee Piper...isn't she perfect...

I colored her with my Copic markers.  I used the same four shades of brown and yellow to color all of the image except for the mug.  I wanted to challenge myself to make a more mono-chromatic look.  I then backed her with some brown cardstock and put her on this wonderful winter pattern paper with snowflakes.

I hope you like her....and maybe check back tomorrow for an Odd-hop featuring wonderful holiday images from Some Odd Girl...and maybe another coffee themed card or two from me later in the week...

Still a little ODD

So this is my last project as a guest designer for Some Odd Girl.  My project today features the new release image called Corgi:

How totally cute is this image!!!  I mean seriously cute!

For my project I used my Copic Markers to color in the Corgi.  I then created this fun outdoor grassy background using my markers as well.  I then trimmed it and framed the white cardstock with this fun brown pattern paper.  I then cut apart a journaling card for my card sentiment and backed it with the same brown paper.  I covered my card front with blue pattern paper and a strip of the same brown.  The sentiment was attached with foam tape so it pops off the card a bit.

Be sure to check out the Some Odd Girl blog and facebook page for more awesome projects using Digital images from Some Odd Girl!

Who's a bit ODD??? Me!

I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for Some Odd Girl stamps!  I got to work with some of their amazing new release digital images.  For my first project I used the new release image titled Bad Hair Day Sheep...I mean how cute is this image!

For my project I first colored the image using my Copic markers.  I slowly built up the grey layers until I had just the right amount of fluff in places..  I then colored the background.  I decided to add some of these cute flowers from my stash.  The sentiment is a long sticker that I cut into smaller pieces and added it to the card front.

Be sure to check out the Some Odd Girl Blog for other great projects featuring this new release image!
